Justin Fieldssecond-year quarterback, commented that the field conditions are not different from last seasoneven accepting that it is something the team has tried to use to take advantage of rivals.

It has always been like this, we have even used the condition of the field as an advantage.

The problem is that many of the injuries that are reported throughout the season derive from Non-contact game related injuriesor, and that on many occasions they are result of poor grating conditions.
